All Saints, Beulah Hill, Upper Norwood

At the junction of Beulah Hill and Church Road in a spacious churchyard. It consists of a nave and tower by James Savage from 1827-1829 to which Edwin Nash added a chancel in 1861.

St John the Evangelist, Upper Norwood

This is one of John Loughborough Pearson’s major large brick built churches and dates from 1878-87. There are inner and outer aisles, together with an apsed Lady Chapel. The south transept was meant to be the base of a large tower that has never been completed. Although there has been considerable structural work done in 2016-2017, serous sunsidence means that the south side of the nave has to be propped by large wooden buttresses.It was damaged in WW2 and restored by Caroe and Partners in 1946-51. Much of the glass by Clayton and Bell was lost at that time. Some has been replaced by 1950s windows by Francis Spear. Some older glass by Kempe and Comper survives.
